On the 8th of December, UNITAR signed a new cooperation framework in
information technologies with the European Organization for Nuclear
Research, CERN . In signing this agreement, UNITAR intends to develop the
long standing and fruitful collaboration that its operational satellite
applications programme "UNOSAT" already had with CERN. Thanks to this
partnership UNITAR will benefit from the CERN IT infrasctructure, and the
partners will notably engage themselves in joint research projects to
develop the practical uses of high technologies for the realisation of the
mission and goals of the entire United Nations system.
